Everyone has a period of their youth they enjoy looking back on.
For me it was 1996 -1999. At the time it felt like it would never end, three years of consistent painting and creative achievement before somehow falling into a normal day job. During this time I was generally broke, living from one art commission to the next, with hindsight I can see I also had focus and drive. It’s something that’s easy to lose when you get comfortable.
Oh, I also got to have fun painting out and about…nothing hardcore, just taking advantage of some under utilised spaces.
…another image from my misspent well-spent youth. A C-Line classic from 1996. A dirty, worn out, vine covered version may still exist hidden behind the wooden sound barriers built along this passage of rail line.
Sara and I are planning our September wedding and we’re constantly looking for inspiration. While hunting for other ideas it seems that even in sunny Queensland gritty street photography is still fashionable for a wedding flick with street cred.
While I may have lost my street cred at least a decade ago, I’m still glad that this old piece of mine continues to make an appearance now and then as a nice background for some happy couples.
